What a fun restaurant. It is a little out of the way being closer to Phoenix Park, but it's worth going out of your way. It's very noticeable as you're walking towards it on the street with its red front and hanging flowers. The inside has a casual, yet nice feel. They have an awesome beer selection and pour a...

If I was lucky enough to live in Dublin, I would make this pub one of my regular stops. Don't miss out on the 10 euro pint and bowl of Irish stew it's great.

They have a gluten free menu, I ordered a chicken curry which was delicious and usually gluten free desserts are boring but they have a "sticky toffee pudding" oh my God it was marvellous!!! The staff is very friendly and the prices are very affordable. Definitely will come back!

My wife and I walked a block from our hotel, the Ashling, on our first evening in Dublin and caught a dinner with Irish music and dancing, and listened to an informative staff discuss Irish culture -- all in a private room upstaits at a reasonable price. Adult beverages were extra.

Lovely looking building from the outside but lacking charm on the inside. Lunch menu was very poor although quality of food we got was ok. Could offer so much more.

Truth be told we only visited this premises because of the free Guinness ticket that came with our bus tour! However, the bar was stacked with alcohol of all descriptions and the glass cases behind the bar were full of unusual and some rare varieties of Gins, Vodkas, Whiskies and all sorts! I don't think we could have asked for... More

We stopped in this pub after having had diner. This was quite empty and without any charm. The service is efficient and friendly but this is not worth a visit

We were delighted to find the Nancy hands pub just a block or two away from our hotel. In fact we liked it so much we ended up going two nights in a row! The staff was warm and friendly, the food terrific, and the entertainment outstanding. Because this pub is not in the main tourist district it had a... More
